Why they do that?

"For their records" is the official explanation. WTF? It doesn't need to be in their God damned records. Personally, I think it's because I took three whole days bereavement leave and they want proof. Which brings me back to, why the hell would a person lie about something like that? I'd give anything to have him back and these pricks want proof. Maybe I'll mail them some ashes.

People have lied about family deaths for time off and benfits before. You really can't blame, trusting in peoples intergrity and honesty hasn't always turned out so well.

I have worked for this place for twenty five years, LN. Twenty five. I have never taken bereavement leave, my time off has, until seven weeks ago, been restricted to sick time and vacation time. Even when my grandparents died the time I took to go back home was vacation. Twenty five years of dedicated service should buy some consideration.

What he said, mick. I've had the same problem...makes me sick I gave 100% for 10 years to then be questioned and in the end laid off. There is no company loyalty to employees anymore. Sad but true.

Don't come here, a lot of small towns in Kentucky are dry including the one I'm living in now. Not that that matters so much when your under 21. My parents both work for pretty good companies. People and bosses from them sent flowers and made an apearence at my gandparents funerals.

Some soul-less jerk in HR thought it would be a good idea to have this policy in place. It probably gave him/her something to put on their self-performance review. Don't take it personally, Mick. I am sure it has nothing to do with you specifically.

Thanks Yurt, I appreciate that.

I know you're right, I guess I just didn't realize just how fresh the wounds still are, even seven weeks down the road. Add to that the old fashioned ideas I have about loyalty and service... You get the picture.
